In this installment of our popular Photo Assignment series, Derrick Story shows how to get professional lighting results by using just one or two strobes that are detached from the camera and triggered remotely by Canon or Nikon digital SLRs. Photo Assignment: Off-Camera Flash covers how to improve the appearance of photos taken indoors, and reduce the appearance of harsh shadows, and get soft, beautiful light that flatters any subject. Along the way, learn lighting fundamentals and how to assemble a kit of equipment essential to any digital photographer who shoots portraits.
Well, we've reached the end of the road on this photo assignment, and now it's time for me to turn the reigns over to you. I hope you've had a good time, and I hope you feel confident now to take that flash off the camera and take some good shots. I want to remind you, we have other photo assignments. We have natural light portraits and fill flash and backlit. So, if you have enjoyed this, take a look at those. Go take some pictures. I'm going to go take some pictures, and I'll see you at lynda.com.
